Virtual Product School | Webinar Replay – Architecting a Modern Data Platform for Heterogeneous Data Across Clusters, Regions, and Clouds

Alluxio foresaw the need for agility when accessing data across silos separated from compute engines like Spark, Presto, TensorFlow and PyTorch. Embracing the separation of storage from compute, the Alluxio data orchestration platform simplifies adoption of the data lake and data mesh paradigm for analytics and AI/ML. Alluxio’s Sr. Product Manager, Adit Madan, shares observations to help you identify ways to use the platform to meet the needs of your data environment and workloads. Missed this live session?
